  • Transcripts from spacer sequences within chromosomal repeat clusters [CRISPRs (clusters of regularly interspaced palindromic repeats)] from archaea have been implicated in inhibiting or regulating the propagation of archaeal viruses and plasmids. For the crenarchaeal thermoacidophiles, the chromosomal spacers show a high level of matches ( approximately 30%) with viral or plasmid genomes. Moreover, their distribution along the virus/plasmid genomes, as well as their DNA strand specificity… CONTINUE READING
